China Airlines is doing its part to help reduce
carbon dioxide emissions by participating in a biofuel program
being jointly developed by Airbus and Air TOTAL.
The 10th China Airlines Airbus A350
aircraft, which took off for Taipei from Toulouse on Thursday, is
using Sustainable Aviation/Alternative Fuels (SAF) to reduce its
carbon dioxide emissions by around 20,000 kg.
The fuel has received the international
certificate of sustainability (COS) for its ability to effectively
reduce GHG emissions and environmental impact.
Its use on China
Airlines’ A350-900 energy-saving aircraft will reduce carbon
dioxide emissions by more than 30% and set a new milestone for
China Airlines Chairman, Nuan-hsuan Ho, said, "The
growth of the global aviation industry has led to an increase in
carbon dioxide emissions as well so SAF is considered an important
way of reducing carbon emissions from the aviation industry. China
Airlines hopes the experience gained this time will encourage the
development of environmentally sustainable and high-efficiency
energy policies in Taiwan, serve as a reference for industry,
government and academic research in the future, set an example for
other domestic carriers and contribute to the development of SAF
by the global aviation industry."
